I made the decision to title this post "I'm Ready For a Change" on Saturday night. Before Saturday, I had a few alternate titles. Before I address the "Change" I am referring to, lets overview the alternate titles.
My episode of Baggage aired on Wednesday. I wasn't 100% sure it was going to air so I really didn't tell anyone other then my mom and Sponsor for Life Pamela Y. Robinson. I did know it was going to air sometime this week. My mom rushed home from work to make sure she didn't miss it. She got home in time but couldn't find the GSN channel (The Game Show Network).
She had to call Verizon Cable and wait for their operator to get on the line. I didn't hear her conversation but she told me she was furious with Verzion because they took forever to give her the channel number for GSN. They kept asking her survey questions to prolong the situation. She told me she had to say, "Listen I didn't call for all this. I need to know what channel is GSN because my son is on television and I'm missing it. That's too funny. I confirmed with my Sponsor for Life a little earlier that I was on TV because she was watching it.

Did I Just Say I was Having Fun?
This week, in a couple conversations or so, I told a few people that I was having fun. That was half way difficult for me to say. I'm use to saying I'm working hard, struggling, trying to survive, maintaining... In the past saying anything like that might of indicated that I'm having fun almost seemed legal. The truth is I'm suppose to be having fun. My acting teacher said on Thursday that, "If you can find reward in your journey, then your already there."
Believe it or not, embracing the fun factor of my quest is a learning process for me. I'm learning how to have fun everyday. I've always been a serious person that has never made time for fun nor did I think it was necessary. Not anymore. Its not the destination, its the journey and the fun you have during the journey. There is so much to talk about in my new found fun. I will expound on my fun factor and the things that are making me happy in another post, in the near future.

The food was okay. I had some Indian food during Excused shoot and that food was jumping.

* As for Code name Japaneses Style Game Show. I did get an email from them today. I was kind of disappointed. Maybe it was the bad feeling I was having yesterday. Furthermore, I found out I'm not one of the top 8 contestants. Instead, I'm an alternate and if they decide to use me they probably wont' tell me until the day before. This is terrible but I'm not worried about it. There are bigger things ahead.

* One of my classmates named Kelly celebrated her birthday today at Bar Lubitsch. The moment I walked in I saw Tatyana Ali. At the point she might of saw me but she stayed focus in her conversation. A little later I saw her again when she walked out the restroom and she stopped smiled and we briefly greeted each other. I can only assume she remembered me from Born To Shine based on how she smiled but I totally regret not initiating a conversation with her. I'm sure I will see her again. Next time I see her I will be sure to start a conversation.
I have nothing to complain about because I'm having fun and I'm enjoying my experience. Everyday is a new adventure and I'm excited about what each day has to offer. Nevertheless, I'm ready for a change. I know there is an imminent change in my living situation soon and I'm ready for it (GodSpeed - JuneSpeed). Let it be positive or negative I'm ready for it. "I'm Ready For a Change."
The song above isn't suppose to resonate feelings of sadness. Its suppose to assist in ushering in the change that I am ready for.
The past 3 weeks have spoiled me a bit. I just completed my first 3 peat and of course I was hoping to maybe get a 4 peat this week but I appreciate the break. Once a week for the last 3 weeks I've been on 3 different shows. Baggage, Excused & Let's Make a Deal.
Again I know this is just a taste test of the great things to come. In the meanwhile, I'm going to continue having fun. Look forward to my 2011 mid term evaluation coming soon.
As the quest continues...
